Your Children Will Be More Successful If You Are a Strict Parent
People who had strict parents know what this means.
It includes orders about focusing on your future, cleaning your room and doing your homework.
When you are a child, you think that these orders and the constant nagging from your parents are what make your life a living hell. However, according to some new studies, strict parents who tried to stay on top of their children have children who will be more successful later in their lives.
At the end when you are older, you will probably be grateful that your parents had a strict parenting style.
Research on strict parents
Erica Rascon, a professor at the Essex University, recently conducted a study on strict parents. She discovered that children who have highly demanding and strict parents are more successful later in life. The study was carried out on more than 10,000 children between the age of 13 and 14. The study lasted for 6 years.
These children, whose parents had high expectation, were more confident and secure in comparison to the others. The strict parenting style and the nagging even reduced the chances of premature pregnancy by nearly five percent.
The children with demanding parents also were more likely to get a well-paid job and to finish college. This discovery seems almost unbelievable. However, the results of this research show that strict parents produce individuals that will be more successful and productive in life.
In most of the children in the research, they were successful in doing what the parents thought it is best for them. However, these children try to avoid what their parents impose on them, but at the end the parents’ recommendations influence the decisions that the children will make.
In most cases, the strict parent was the mother. Most of the children viewed their strict parents as the enemy. However, they were definitely not aware is that the strict parenting is what will make them successful later in life.
Children should know that even though strict parents may seem as hell, they are actually quite helpful.
Later on in life, the children will certainly recognize and value the efforts that their parents placed in raising them. These children will probably employ the same rules when they become parents.
